Differently Wired: Raising an Exceptional Child in a Conventional World with Deborah Reber

Dr. Dan welcomes Debbie Reber, founder of TILT Parenting today.  The two discuss Tilt Parenting as well as Debbie’s new book Differently Wired: Raising an Exceptional Child in a Conventional World

Debbie Reber is the founder of TiLT Parenting and host of the TiLT Parenting Podcast, which she created to support parents raising “differently-wired” kids and shift the conversation around how neurodiversity (everything from ADHD and dyslexia to Aspergers and giftedness) is perceived and experienced in the world. 

Parenting is a journey filled with twists and turns. Debbie shares her personal story about raising a special needs child and how she had to learn to become present, get rid of “the shoulds” and embrace imperfection.  Her lively discussion with Dr. Dan touches on regulation (for kids and parents), communication (again for kids and parents), fear, and more.

Debbie’s Parent Footprint moment is honest and real, and one that will benefit all listeners.

Debbie Reber is a New York Times bestselling author, podcast host, life coach, and speaker who, before creating TiLT, spent more than ten years writing inspiring books for women and teens and speaking about issues like media literacy, self-esteem, and confidence.  Debbie Reber moved her career in a more personal direction in 2016 when she founded TiLT Parenting, a website, top parenting podcast (more than 250k downloads), and social media community for parents like her who are raising differently-wired children.  She currently lives with her son and husband in the Netherlands.
